1. Go for a long walk on the beach to see the historic lighthouseCouple standing on beach at sunset

It may be cliche, but nothing beats a long walk on the beach with the person you love. It’s even better when you walk with a destination in mind! Go to the Lighthouse Beach & Fishing Pier located at 110 Periwinkle Way Sanibel, FL 33957 to see the functional lighthouse and a boardwalk nature trail winding through native wetlands. 

2. Test your teamwork skills with a canoe or double kayak

Boating together is the true test of teamwork! Rent a canoe or kayak and tackle the open water together. There are several rental sites around the island, like Tarpon Bay Explorers and Adventure Sea Kayak & S.U.P.

3. See who can spot more rare birds while bird watching

Sanibel Island is known for its many species of birds. They enjoy the subtropical climate and can be seen from a number of places. Check out the interior wetlands either early in the day or toward sunset. The Center Tract at the Sanibel-Captiva Conservation Foundation, the Bailey Tract, and Sanibel Gardens Preserve are all great spots as well with well-maintained walking trails. Spot red-shouldered hawks, woodpeckers, roseate spoonbills, egrets, herons, ibis, and other species.

4. Treat yourselves to dinner at one of Sanibel’s innovative eateries

Chefs have come from all over the world to open up shops in Sanibel Island. No matter your palette, you’re bound to find something to your liking. The island has 50 restaurants ranging from cute ice cream shops to extraordinary waterfront fine dining restaurants with unreal beach views. Make a reservation at one of Sanibel’s restaurants for two!

5. Enjoy each other’s company while fishing

Relax and enjoy each other’s company while fishing at one of Sanibel’s prime spots. Go offshore fishing, inshore/back bay, fly fishing, or fish without a boat. Sanibel fishing is for all skill levels and many shops offer rental gear.
